HAZARDOUS & INDUSTRIAL SOLID & LIQUIDS WASTE OXIDIZER TREATMENT SYSTEM

Client: Syntex Pharmaceuticals International Ltd.

Location:  Freeport, Grand Bahamas Island, Bahamas

Background:   Syntex is a major manufacturer of pharmaceutical and chemical products.

Problem:   As a result of the chemical production processes, a significant amount of hazardous and non-hazardous solid and liquid wastes are generated daily.  Off-site disposal was not a cost–effective option.

Waste Description:  Wastes include wastewater treatment sludge, industrial solid wastes, solvent-saturated carbon and carbon filters, and a variety of organic, aqueous, and chlorinated solvents.

Solution:   Air Clear engineers designed, fabricated and installed a complete waste treatment system.

Process Equipment:  The system is a direct-fired rotary kiln incinerator with a wet air pollution control and continuous emissions monitoring system.  The Waste Oxidizer was designed to simultaneously process both solid and liquid wastes 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

The highly corrosive nature of the waste required special refractory materials to provide maximum resistance to chemical attack and erosion.

A custom tank farm and specialized solvent metering and injection system provides for optimum storage, mixing and injection of various waste solvents.

The kiln and scrubber system were remotely operated via a state-of-the-art distributive control system (DCS).
